EDN present at the first Choreographic Convention

The Creative Europe cooperation project Life Long Burning (LLB) – Towards a sustainable Eco-System for Contemporary Dance in Europe has started to develop Choreographic Conventions, professional platforms addressing current issues of the dance field as well as the field’s place in society. The first convention was organised by Nomad Dance Academy Slovenia in collaboration with Centre for Urban Culture Kino Šiška (EDN member) on April 8-10, 2019 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

EDN supported this first convention with the active participation of two board members, Pia Krämer (O Espaço do Tempo) and Paul-Eric Labrosse (La Place de la Danse – CDCN Toulouse Occitanie).

This first Convention took the form of three-day conference on an international network of residencies in the field of contemporary performing arts, with special focus on contemporary dance. Purpose of the conference is to build a network of residencies in South-East Europe as a model of institutionalized and decentralized center for contemporary dance.
